The Dream Castle Restaurant.
We had dinner on the roof of this restaurant with Graham's parent's and his aunt & uncle. The views were stunning, we could see Hilarion Castle nestling in the hills behind us and a fabulous panoramic view across Girne, down to the sea. On a clear day you can see Turkey. Unfortunately, the photos I took of the view were a bit out of focus, but I did get a photo of rather handsome looking cockerel.
Graham & I shared a vegetarian meze for a starter. It was lovely. Hummus, beetroot, yoghurt, feta, a garlic dip, rocket, olives and pitta.
For our main course we both ordered vegetable kebabs, which had that lovely chargrilled flavour. Most enjoyable and I was only bitten on the ankle twice, not by the kebabs, I hasten to add!
For dessert, instead of bringing us a menu the waiter brought around some baklava and fruit; apple, honeydew melon and big slices of juicy watermelon, which are in season here and so refreshing. I thought that was a really lovely idea for dessert, a nice touch.
We finished our meal with a drink on the house. Graham had a diet pepsi, but I sipped and savoured a mint liqueur. Why do these always taste so good on holiday, but languish in a cupboard gathering dust, at home?
